What type of href is better for google spider
The first way is relative from root which makes it kind of absolute, while the second way is "straight" absolute.
I am aware that the second way adds extra burden to page downloading since it increases page size, but i want to make sure whether either is better preffered by google.

[edit reason] use example.com - it can never be owned [/edit]
Make sure you have canonical urls handled properly (with-www vs. no-www). If you go with full absolute urls in your links, stick with your preferred form of the hostname.
Keyword density tools can give you a quick warning for the worst of the "sins" that you might commit on a page - but that doesn't mean that today's search engines calculate such a number as part of the algo.
